>> now, maryland's most accurate forecast,. >> not a bad mona cross baltimore and maryland after rain totals in excess of three and four inches for much of the state over the weekend and down at the beach it was serious flooding in spots up through delaware as well. 77 right now. dew point number 73, when you have that much rain over the weekend today we had a warm sunny day. moisture from the ground gets released into the atmosphere. take a look at belaire with a mix of sun and clouds, we cleared out a little bit at sunset. in hartford. always a great view. lot of back to school activities today. robert coleman with partly cloudy skies, laurel same, high school annex, home of the spartans. numbers showing up 70s now to near 80. with the humidity it's feeling warmer than that. take a look. dew point numbers, total measure of moisture in the air. you cool the air, you get to 100% humidity so if the air
temperature drops to 74 it's 100% humidity this is what it feels like with all the humidity. 80 in the high country. take a look. line of showers pushing in. not particularly impressive. this won't be a severe weather producer. it'll bring showers overnight had to the morning. unwelcome rain because the ground is still saturated. it won't be the rain or storm action that will produce flooding other than maybe just a little ponding. there will be a few heavy to moderate showers but they shouldn't belong lasting much the front will keep moving, moving off shore. that will clear the sykes briefly. the next chance for rain, in fact could come from the storm that all eyes are watching, isaac as that storm makes landfall into louisiana and moves up in to the central part of the united states. it could drift in to the midatlantic for part of the labor day weekend. with very a vested interest in isaac. isaac has not been upgraded to
hurricane strength. it is still a powerful tropical storm. it has produced flooding rains across florida. look at the reach from the eye the center of circulation. out here to eastern florida. melbourne, we are regard, daytona, feet of water on the ground. they had it there today. now we are watching the more intense convection on the westside of the center. whole system now making its move toward southeast louisiana. get an idea, what towns are in the -- immediate path here. couple things, the northeast, this is where we have the upper air circulation that produces isolated f0, f1 tornadoes, not the super strong ones but we will get spin off tornados in the panhandle from this it. also the main wind flow. where we can add the forward speed of the storm plus the circulating winds, that is likely to come up toward mobile bay at this point in time.
the track will go up into mobile. southern and mississippi, buloxi. probably into new orleans. the center of the storm may go over the big easy but its that right guard rant. that area between 25 and 50 file miles narcotic likely to make landfall in southern mississippi. we think as a category one hurricane. the projected strength has been brought down a bit. we are talking about a slow moving system. it just stalls in southern louisiana, incredible flooding. it won't won't be the wind damage of hurricane katrina but we will see flooding rains. perhaps rain here from the remnants. tonight 70, clouds on the increase, watch for those showers toward daybreak. could be slick for the drive in
spots. clearing out by the afternoon. here is the seven day forecast, beautiful weather behind that front for wednesday, thursday, friday, we will have a chance to dry from all the rain. that's good because we may see more rain from at least -- remnant moisture from isaac. saturday into sunday at the very minimum likely to see a more cloudly situation. isaac could have the impact up the coast. >> thank you. the robin roberts says this week will be her last on good morning america before she goes on medical leave. she has a blood and blown marrow disease and will have a bone marrow transplant. she let people know she will go through -- what she will go through once she leaves. >> i will check in to the hospital the following tuesday. i will begin the process. it takes about ten days after being admitted because there are some things have you to do before the transplant. >> she beat breast cancer five- years ago and is confident she
